Please join us on Monday, March 13th 6:30 pm for Prison Pipeline on KBOO Community Radio as we talk with the cast and crew of the new film screening March 26th at 2pm at the Hollywood Theater called, In the Beginning, a short film about the first few days in the life of a post release person of color as they try to find work, housing and reconnect with their family.  We will also be joined by members of the theater arts group, Open Hearts Open Minds, which brings theater to Oregon’s prison system.

"In the Beginning" is a 24 minute narrative short fiction that tells the story of a young man of color – newly released from US prison – who returns to society with the hope of beginning a new life. He discovers on his solitary journey that the world sees him only as his crime. Some of the actors in this film have experienced incarceration in Oregon prisons themselves. The film screening will be followed by an artist-audience panel Q&A on the film and the challenges of post-prison life. Proceeds will go to Open Hearts Open Minds, an Oregon-based non-profit organization that supports individuals serving prison sentences through arts and dialogue.

Prison Pipeline is a radio program dedicated to educating the public about the Oregon criminal justice system. Our goal is to present a unique understanding of the criminal justice system, address the root causes of crime, and challenge the status quo. We seek to promote awareness and activism in order to foster a safe, healthy, and just society. Tune in every Monday at 6:30 P.M. to hear our hosts Karen James, Adam Carpinelli, Emma Lugo, and Doug McVay explore the Oregon justice system with a variety of guests.
